Witnessing the baptism of your child is quite an experience. But seeing the photos of the ritual is simply mesmerizing and surreal! I am grateful to have been the storyteller of many baptisms where I was called to photograph and film a large variety of such ceremonies, according to a plethora of rites and rituals, all to fulfill one of the Holy sacraments of the Christian faith, to be united with Christ and the Church.
Baptisms are performed using water, from a little over the head to complete immersion, offering beautiful photo opportunities and memories to cherish for a lifetime.
I love so many things about the baptism ceremony: the priestly garments, prayers over the water, incense filled room, the sacred oil(s), the beauty and power of watching a baby going under water and coming out as a child of God. I am devoted to giving to the family a unique perspective of an event which will forever change the life of their little one.
I can help in documenting this life-altering milestone in the life of your family. Here are a few of my favorite moments. Enjoy!
